Product Description

Review

"It's dangerous to use the word genius to describe a writer, but I'll risk it with him" (John Humphrys)

"For as long as I'm immersed in a P.G. Wodehouse book, it's possible to keep the real world at bay and live in a far, far nicer, funnier one where happy endings are the order of the day" (Marian Keyes)

"Wodehouse always lifts your spirits, no matter how high they happen to be already" (Lynne Truss)

"The incomparable and timeless genius - perfect for readers of all ages, shapes and sizes!" (Kate Mosse)

"Not only the funniest English novelist who ever wrote but one of our finest stylists" (Susan Hill)

Book Description

'You don't analyse such sunlit perfection, you just bask in its warmth and splendour.' Stephen Fry

More About the Author

The author of almost a hundred books and the creator of Jeeves, Blandings Castle, Psmith, Ukridge, Uncle Fred and Mr Mulliner, P.G. Wodehouse was born in 1881 and educated at Dulwich College. After two years with the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank he became a full-time writer, contributing to a variety of periodicals including Punch and the Globe. He married in 1914. As well as his novels and short stories, he wrote lyrics for musical comedies with Guy Bolton and Jerome Kern, and at one stage had five musicals running simultaneously on Broadway. His time in Hollywood also provided much source material for fiction. At the age of 93, in the New Year's Honours List of 1975, he received a long-overdue knighthood, only to die on St Valentine's Day some 45 days later.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full Marks for the Light Side of the Moon 24 Feb 2008
Format:Hardcover
`Full Moon' is a Wodehouse novel set at his own Garden of Eden, Blandings Castle. We last entered Blandings with `Uncle Fred in the Springtime' and although Uncle Fred is not present his understudy The Honourable Galahad is in residence along with The Honourable Freddie whom is amiably if not ably assisting him in bringing to a happy conclusion the courtship of his cousins Prudence and Veronica to Bill `Blister' Lister and Tipton Plimsoll respectively.

As ever complications come in the way of Lord Emsworth's inability to grasp or remember anything which is further mixed up by Blisters appearance under not one but three assumed names. The difficulties mount until Wodehouse and Gally pull the hug out from under them with there usual deft touch.

As well as true love the winners here are the reader with priceless prose and dialogue such as an interview between Gally and Lady Hermione on the first arrival of Blister, `Is he wanted by the Police?', `No, he is not wanted by the Police.', `How I sympathize with the Police, I know just how they feel'.

5.0 out of 5 stars As funny as ever.......... 5 Mar 2013
By Pyewacket TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
P G Wodehouse certainly knew how to write funny books.

This time, a heap of relatives have descended upon Blandings and Clarence. His Sister Lady Hermione Wedge her daughter and her Husband and her Niece Prudence who has been sent 'down' to the Castle for attempting to marry a so called 'Commoner'. Said 'Commoner' is one Bill Lister, yet another of Gally's myriad of Godsons.

Then Freddie arrives back in the UK. He is now married and has been sent to England to convert the Brits to the brand of dog food his Company manufactures back in the US. Clarence of course is horribly shocked that Freddie might be returning to the 'nest' permanently.

Then we meet Tipton Plimsoll another American who one day develops spots on his chest so off he tootles to Harley Street to try and discover what is causing his ailment. The Physician at Harley Street tells him that if he doesn't lay off the booze he will end up having hallucinations. This is where things start to become really funny.

Gally and Bill get together to form a plan to get the latter into Blandings where he can once again court Prudence.......inevitably things go from bad to worse and T. Plimsoll Esq., is now convinced that he is seeing the face of a gorilla everywhere he looks. In fact it is poor Bill attempting to pass himself off as an artist of the porcine variety....the resulting painting of the Empress deeply wounds the Earl. So trying once more Gally comes up with a disguise for his Bill......a beard.

Tipton too has fallen in love with Veronica the rather dim daughter of Lady and Lord Wedge.

Then there is the incident of the diamond necklace which of course Clarence has managed to mess up again.

All in all this I believe is the funniest book of the 10 Wodehouse wrote.
There are a lot of typos in this book which I have informed Amazon about.............i.e. instead of Gally you keep seeing Gaily.

Bit more proof checking required - 'Gally' appears several times as 'Gaily' which adds a whole new pink tone to proceedings. Others give the impression that PGW is grammatically sloopy when he ain't.

5.0 out of 5 stars Typical Wodehouse 10 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the third time of reading and it seems just as fresh as the first. Only Wodehouse could invent different situations that arise. The way he writes it just seems as if it could have happened in real life!

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest English author ever 14 April 2013
By Jerome
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a strong candidate for the greatest novel ever written. This is a glorious, idealised world brought to the reader in exquisitely crafted, flawless sentences by a master of the language. It is also one of the funniest books ever written. If you have never read Wodehouse, this is a good place to start. For my money, the Blandings novels are much better than the more famous Wooster and Jeeves ones.
